Off-grid and Backup

The presence of a functional electricity grid is not always as obvious as it would seem to be. An insufficient infrastructure is often the cause for an unreliable grid. Things become even more difficult when there is no grid at all. And yet you are in need of a reliable electricity supply. A local and properly functioning system is the only answer at this point. Victron Energy offers you such an answer. We are proud to offer you our modern translation for freedom and independence. Energy, Anytime, Anywhere.

Fijian organic Iced-Cream: 3-phase off-grid

A remote part of the island of Fiji with no access to grid electricity may not sound like an ideal location for a business. However, German national Robert Glowatzki and his Italian wife Lucilla Chiericati have set up a factory to make organic iced cream – using exotic fruits like Soursop, Passionfruit and Vudi (my mouth is […]

Serengeti Off-Grid Solar Saviours

Sometimes a project is just too large, complex or geographically remote for one company to do on their own. It takes cooperation to achieve the desired outcome; and so it is with Lahia Lodge and their large off-grid solar/battery system, in Tanzania’s fabulous Serengeti national park. This brand new luxury resort is (surprisingly) the first […]

Onshore wind measurements using vertical profiling Lidar

We get some unusual applications of Victron Energy products and this seems to be in that class – a niche market where wind measurements need to be taken for onshore wind farms. This installation uses Victron components to give power to and allow a vertical profiling Lidar measuring device to run with a 24/7 electricity […]
